this? >> reporter: well, it's hard to say because they have said so much over the past decade. they have had a couple of bankruptcy filings. they have had a lot of acrimony with the unions. the union members say they have been giving up and giving up. so they are the ones really drawing the line in the sand at this point. and hostess says that they can't go on. they say they can't go on. we'll see what happens tomorrow. >> all right. len ramirez in oakland, thank you. remember all that pain at the gas pump this year? well, get ready to add insult christoforous with more tonight. >> reporter: rescue crews and stunned townspeople raced toward a union pacific train in midland, texas, after it struck a parade float carrying wounded american veterans. the veterans were on the way to a hunt for heroes banquet which was to be followed by a weekend deer hunting trip. the trailer in which the vets were riding was being pulled across the tracks when the train hit. the injured were takena local hospital, which called in all available staff to handle casualties. so far no word on whether there to injury. at the time, california drivers were told that the price spikes were necessary to make up for refinery outages. but cbs 5 reporter grace lee found out that we may have been fooled. grace. >> reporter: dana, that is a possibility but we're not sure. that's one reason why they had a special senate committee hearing today and invited a research group that specializes in energy pricing and what they found was after months of research, they could not explain why we had those gas were warnings about the approaching train or if the vehicle malfunctioned. alexis christoforous, cbs news. a new round of rocket attacks threatens to push israel and palestinians to the brink of all-out war. palestinian militants in gaza fired more than 100 rockets today killing three people in southern israel. israel responded with a series of air strikes designed to hit underground rocket launching sites. it all comes one day after

price hikes in may and in october. that's the mystery there. they can't explain it. but it did cost californians in october about $1 billion. >> reporter: when prices spiked at the gas station the 7 gas companies in california said it's not our fault. instead, they blamed accidents like the chevron refinery fire or unexpected maintenance problems. but the biggest price spikes were in may and october. that's months before and after israeli forces assassinated the powerful military chief of hamas. the white house came out in support of israel and condemned hamas for the rocket attacks. oil giant bp will pay a record $4.5 billion criminal penalty for its disastrous 2010 gulf oil spill. that's on top of the $20 billion that the company already set aside to cover damage claims. bp pleaded guilty today to a dozen felony counts for the deadly rig explosion that triggered the spill and for lying to congress about how the chevron fire in august. >> we have seen shifts in price of gasoline. >> reporter: it's one of the reason senator mark leno called a committee hearing today. they found that in may, gas prices shot up to 4.41 a gallon which is the equivalent of $48 million in profit a day for the gas companies. in october, they were hiked even higher to $4.71 a gallon. but because of supply, the profit slightly lower for much oil was gushing into the gulf. two company executives also face manslaughter charges. police had to break up a protest outside a uc board of regents meeting in san francisco this morning. it's after a crowd of students and employees began blocking off streets around the ucsf cam pulse. that group was there to protest cuts and proposed new fees. they are also demanding tuition rollbacks through prop 30 funds. the voter-approved measure promises to funnel money into

6:09 pm
refinery in richmond and this natural gas power plant in santa clara have something in common. they both emit a lot of carbon dioxide when producing their products. and they are two of the 350 businesses involved in california's new cap and trade program. >> the overall goal is to bring down the greenhouse gas emissions to the 1990 level by 2020. >> reporter: here's how the program works. the state calculates how much nearly $5 cheaper than the black friday ad. it's a similar story for this wireless printer at staples. selling for $199 this black friday, the same as last black friday but you could have bought it cheaper a month ago. >> the rock bottom price for this printer was $179.99. >> reporter: the less on? >> prize bounce around all the time. >> reporter: stores use ads to get you in the door in hopes you'll fill your basket once you're there. buyer beware. just because something says it's on sale doesn't mean it's co2 each business produces, measured in units of a metric tonight, called allowances. each business is required to purchase enough allowances at auction to cover the amount of their pollutants. if a business exceeds its emissions cap it will have to buy extra allowances to cover the overages. if it operates more efficiently it can sell off allowances. it creates a commodity market. >> they are paying to emit. the advantage of that for them actually a bargain. >> don't just assume that everything else in the store might be a good deal. >> reporter: retail experts warn you should avoid buying toys, jewelry, winter clothes and watches on black friday. prices for those items will likely be cheaper late north season and remember, a lot of those door buster deals are for limited quantities. they plan to get you in the door and hope you buy more.
6:10 pm
and california is that it gives them the ability to incorporate reductions into their business plan so they can develop a strategy to do it in a way that isn't going to cost them a lot of money and jack up their prices. >> reporter: while no one is happy about having to pay more, silicon valley power says it prefers this market-driven approach to having the state just order them to cut emissions by a certain date. >> to give that opportunity to us to decide how we approach >> of course if you wait until the day after christmas, it's really cheap! [ laughter ] >> and then there's that. >> yeah. >> and actually christmas is in the middle of the week so maybe you can celebrate christmas the following weekend this year. >> it's a day. >> thank you. all right. grab the hot melted butter! and get a bib because this fisherman starting to bring in the dungeness crab. we have the outlook for the season. >> that's unfair at dinner time. here's a peek at what we have these goals is preferable over the straight regulations or determinant regulations. >> reporter: but to achieve the goal as time passes, the state will begin lowering the cap forcing more businesses to cut emission further and there will be fewer allowances available making them more expensive. eventually it will be more cost- effective for businesses to invest in cleaner technology than to chase after the allowances. but critics say there's another choice many businesses may make, to pack up and leave the going on weather-wise. we have ourselves some rainfall poised to move n doesn't look impressive but find out how much rain you will get in your backyard as soon as this weekend. your forecast next. >> a 29-year-old 49ers mystery is solved. i'm dennis o'donnell. and jim harbaugh's heart problem forces him to miss practice. reaction coming up. ,,,,,,,,
